So I went on another job interview today. The job is mine if I want it. It starts in January. You know, January — the month we’re packing up and moving away? Yep. Pft.
And this from the private school: We regret to inform you that another applicant has been chosen for the position.
Listen, if they really regret it, they’d have hired me, right? Another pft!
Amoeba sent me this email he received from a colleague. Maybe I should try this:
Since this promises to be an unusually annoying week, I thought I would attach a form letter from the Harvard Law Review for those applying for jobs and being rejected:
“I regret to inform you that I am unable to accept your refusal to offer me a position. This year I have received an unusually large number of rejection letters, making it impossible for me to accept them all. Despite your outstanding experience in rejecting applicants, your refusal does not meet my needs at this time. Therefore I shall initiate employment with your department on September . . .”
